Physical therapy and physical therapy mean the same thing. Physical therapy or physical therapy are terms used to maintain, renew and maximize movement, strength and general well-being of people throughout their lives. Rehabilitation, on the other hand, is a focused treatment process aimed at increasing the independence of people with disorders and functional limitations caused by primary pathological processes and the resulting disorders.

Classic massage therapy (KMT): 15 – 20 minutes

Due to the law, cancellations must be communicated at least 24 hours before the start of the appointment. We accept cancellations for Monday only until Friday at 20:00.
If an appointment is not cancelled in good time, at least 24 hours in advance, a cancellation fee will be charged in the amount of the valid treatment fees of the statutory or private health insurance companies. This also applies in case of illness (see also § 615 BGB).
For the anamnesis, the therapist asks the patient whether and from which complaints he suffers. In doing so, the details, which include the type, duration, origin, localization and cause of the pain, give him important clues to the findings. Other helpful information for taking a medical history includes any special features of the condition. This includes other medical conditions and medications taken for other conditions.
In addition, any records a patient has about his or her complaints will help. Therefore, it is good if he brings x-rays, MRI images, surgery, doctor or rehab reports to the first treatment appointment.
To get an idea of the condition of the patient’s body, the first thing the therapist does is look at the entire body. Basically, physiotherapists have a good knowledge of the human anatomy in order to be able to assess the quality of the interaction of muscles, ligaments and joints. Even though in most people the musculoskeletal system functions without problems, wear and tear can occur with age or as a result of accidents. To better understand the condition of the body, the physiotherapist may palpate muscle tension or examine the mechanical function of joints. He pays attention to the mobility of the joints, how elastic the muscles are and how strong the muscle strength is. The results of these examinations make up the findings.
The results are of course documented by the practice, because they are obliged to do so by the framework agreement with the health insurance companies. The following data is recorded in the documentation, which includes the findings, the goals of the therapy, the treatment time and the results of the treatment. The therapist regularly updates the data with the patient. In addition, the data is also kept in the practice, so that the patients have the possibility to get an insight into the therapy results.
A payment due on the basis of a prescription for therapeutic products is not a „practice fee“ but a prescription fee as defined in Social Code Book V (Section 32 (2) in conjunction with Section 61 sentence 3 of Social Code Book V).
The law stipulates that you must pay a co-payment of 10% of the invoice amount and a prescription fee of 10 euros (per prescription) for prescriptions for therapeutic products.
Children and adolescents up to 18 years of age are exempt from co-payments, even if they have an income. No co-payments are required for prescriptions from the Employer’s Liability Insurance Association (BG) or for private prescriptions.
Privately insured patients are provided with a fee agreement and the current price list for their information. This can be requested in advance by e-mail or telephone.
Patients who wish to take advantage of our range of treatments without a prescription can use our price list as a guideline and must pay the fee when starting treatment.
